Meet the New Golf R Cabriolet

The first ever open-top R model will open for ordering this Spring priced at £38,770 RRP OTR.

The new range-topping cabriolet is powered by a four-cylinder 2.0-litre engine, which propels the car from 0 to 62 mph in just 6.4 seconds, with an electronically limited top speed of 155 mph. This makes the New Golf R Cabriolet the fastest open top Golf in history.


The New Golf R Cabriolet offers a bespoke front bumper with a gloss-black grille and 'R' logo. The sports chassis means the Golf sits 25mm lower than the standard Golf Cabriolet sitting on 19" Alloy wheels.

On closer inspection you will see the new painted black brake calipers sporting the Golf R logo to go with the new black door mirror casings.

The look is finished with side sill extensions, a gloss black rear diffuser framed by chrome-tipped exhausts either side and smoked LED tail lights. 

The fully electric insulated hood, operated by a switch in the centre console, can be lowered in 9.5 seconds at speeds of up to 18 mph (and raised in 11.0 seconds).


The cabriolet has four individual sports seats in ‘Vienna Cool Leather’, with ‘R’ logos in the head restraints. 
The multi-function steering wheel is leather wrapped with handbrake grip and gear lever sporting a contrasting grey stitching. 

Pedals feature brushed aluminium caps, and the doors and dashboard have ‘Silver Lane’ aluminium decorative inlays.

Spec includes DAB radio with MDI (multi-device interface) and Bluetooth telephone connectivity. 

The New Golf R Cabriolet opens for ordering on 5th March with deliveries expected in May.
